“Favorite causeway bay stay”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

J plus is what boutique hotels are supposed to be: chic, fun and trendy! On top of that the service is great and the rooms are clean. Get the 1 bedroom instead of the studio option. A great night's sleep and walking distance to shopping and dining, what more could you ask for?

This is a real find for Hong Kong and such great value too!
The rooms are fantastic and spacious, I was upgraded to a one bedroom suite and was quite overwhelmed with how big it was -- 780 square feet! I loved the little kitchen, stocked with everything you may need to cook a meal, my comfortable sofa in the living room, and the little divan hidden behind gauzy curtains ... perfect for curling up with a good book.
Philip Stark designed furniture and interiors can be meaningless if service is below standard
but the people at J Plus Hotel were welcoming, always smiling and very attentive and efficient.
The lobby on the ground floor is just as chic and fun as the rooms -- with eclectic and eye catching decor. The lobby is where they lay out a free continental breakfast buffet of fresh fruits and warm bread and you can get freshly brewed free flowing coffee throughout the day.
The room service menu has lots of choices from carefully chosen restaurants and coffee shops within the area that will deliver to the hotel.
The hotel is centrally located in Causeway Bay, step outside the door and you're 3 minutes away from everything -- a subway station, a local wet market, small boutiques with trendy apparel and eateries serving great chinese food!
Japanese department store Sogo is just 3 minutes away too and all the other big department stores are also within easy walking distance.

Room Tip: The view is not much to look at and the noise from the traffic in the streets can penetrate the wind...

Great value, Phillipe Stark interior design, now looking a bit worn but still trendy. Location in Causeway Bay with loads of local food and eateries around the hotel just a quick walk away. Italian restaurant in house is also great but must be adventurous and savor the local fare. Lastly don't forget cocktail/happy hour where drinks are on the house.

We've stayed at this hotel several times in the last 8 years (including when it was originally called the Jia Boutique). It was one of the first boutique apart hotels opened in HK but has not dated at all. In fact, it continues to excel. We recently tried another newer boutique hotel elsewhere in HK just to stay in a different area but the J Plus compares favourably if not better. Definitely worth considering the 1 bedroom as it has have a significant size advantage over the studio option. Although the rooms are furnished exactly the same as when it first open, they don't feel dated or worn, which is a credit to hotel management. As well, the hotel is always clean and the staff friendly but not intrusive. And my partner loves the complimentary afternoon wine, nibblies and breakfasts. But possibly its best feature since day one is its location...you are located in the middle of the densest and most vibrant part of Hong Kong - Causeway Bay.

Room Tip: Go the 1 bedroom if you can afford it.

We stood in this hotel from 12th to 14th of April 2013. At 3 AM we were rudely awoken by a phone call and loud knocking on our suite door. A staff member asked to enter our suite and proceeded to our bedroom where we had been fast asleep just seconds before.

He then took off his shoes and stepped onto our bed. He started fumbling around a fire and smoke detector device above our bed. Only then he explained that a fire and smoke alarm had been triggered at their control room.

The rude method of problem solving at 3 AM by invading our privacy was totally unacceptable.

Other than that our stay was considerably agreeable. The interior design though does not essentially compensating for the lack of the splendid view over the Hong Kong Bay. The breakfast is mediocre and served in the lobby area. The location is central close to amenities.

The cleanliness is rather poor, don't look under the curtains or furniture! There is a constant odour of cooked food on the 5th floor where we stood.

There is also a huge construction site just across the road from this building. Be aware of the constant hacking noise.

Room Tip: Ask for a cooking odour free suite. We had our suite on the 5th floor and it smelled of cooked food...

Dear casablanca1628,

Please accept my most sincere apologies for the unpleasant incident that you've experienced.
Very unfortunately the fire system was triggered by extremely high humidity from the weather on the night while you stayed with us .The fire control panel indicated a fire in your guest room and in order to ensure the safety of all our guests, we always take prompt action to inspect the spot.
I fully understand your frustration while being awaken at 3am; please accept my most sincere apology.
Please kindly rest assure this is an isolated incident and does not reflect the standard of service of J Plus.Kindly rest assure that a better communication will be delivered in the future.
We will definitely review the whole procedures and ensure our guests have a safe and enjoyable stay with us. We are very disappointed to learn about your experience, and we would like to invite you to share more details with us via e-mail: eunicechung@jplushongkong.com

Great location for exploring HK, Right next to Causeway bay MTR and Times square

Quite small, but everything is in HK! Concierge is great, useful discounts and restaurant tips, handy to have a little kitchenette too.

Excellent location and great value for money even for a suite make this a wonderful place to stay in HK. The location is excellent for the price, near some great restaurants as well as the "ding ding" tram, minibus stops and MTR. Breakfast is continental and sufficient but the 24 hour light refreshment area in the lobby is well stocked and a nice touch. Service was friendly and efficient.

Room Tip: The suites are well worth it, with a kitchenette and enough space for an alcove day bed.
